Component 3 Exam - Daily Dose of DIT My students have downloaded the Google Classroom app to their smartphones so they can receive regular notifications from me. I use the stream on Google Classroom to provide students with a Daily Dose of DIT, and then put the Daily Dose into a spreadsheet. Really recommend Google Classroom if you are not already using it, and I hope that the Daily Doses attached can help you/your students in preparation for the Component 3 exam. I will update this regularly as I add more daily doses.

BTEC TA Digital Information Tech C3 Exam

(0)
With students, prior to assessment, we run a walk-through-talk-through lesson, where using a visualiser, we talk through the questions and then the teacher handwrites the answer explaining how they structure it. This has resulted in greater confidence displayed by students in the following assessment. As we have multiple teachers, a solution is provided with possible answers so that there is consistency in guidance given to students. Following the assessment, in the DIRT lesson, we go through a modelled answer to again show students how the teacher would have approached the actual assessment and things they should have picked up on when reading/answering the questions. This assessment is based on: Modern Technologies and the Impact of Modern Technologies.
